Arkaba Hotel Commission

The Arkaba Hotel Commission was established in 2014 and provided funding for an emerging artist, who was a recent graduate from Adelaide Central School of Art, to produce a large, site-specific work in response to the Arkaba Hotel.

The work was then displayed at the Hotel for 12 months in the main stairwell before being sold by auction at a fundraising event. Proceeds from the sale of the artwork went toward supporting scholarships for students undertaking study at the School. 

The last Comission Auction was held in June 2018, and featured the Meandering series by Jane Skeer.


The first Arkaba Hotel Commission was awarded in 2014 to Kate Kurucz (2012 Bachelor of Visual Art (Honours) graduate). Alison Thomas (2014 Bachelor of Visual Art graduate) received the second Commission in 2015. The final recipient of the Commission was Jane Skeer (2015 Bachelor of Visual Art (Honours) graduate) in 2016 .
